Opening Films 

by Inlander Staff & r & & r & Match Point -- Woody Allen's best film since Sweet and Lowdown is a throwback to his Crimes and Misdemeanors period of seriousness. It's about a burned-out tennis player (Jonathan Rhys-Meyers) who meets and marries a beautiful and wealthy woman, with her family obligingly inviting him into the fold. But he can't keep his eyes (or anything else) off the fianc & eacute;e (Scarlett Johansson) of his brother-in-law. Things get messy, then unnerving, in Allen's unpredictable, terrific script. (ES) Rated R





Underworld 2: Evolution -- Werewolves vs. Vampires redux! Sweet. Except this time, our beloved Selene has to team up with a lycan hybrid (half-man, half-werewolf ... pay attention) to save both the werewolves and the vampires from an insidious new threat: super vampires! Or something. Smacks of Blade II to us -- but whatever, it's got werewolves and vampires. Rated R





End of the Spear -- The story of how killing a bunch of missionaries eventually led a group of Ecuadorian aboriginals to stop their murdering ways. We're withholding judgment, but it seems pretty damned xenophobic and Anglo-centric. Rated PG-13





The New World -- In The Thin Red Line, director Terrence Malick created a film of dreamy metaphysical brilliance against a backdrop of incomparable human loss (the Pacific Theater in World War II). Now he's bringing that to another of America's darker hours, the Jamestown Settlement in 1607 and Europe's first permanent contact with Virginia's native peoples. Malick's films are highly allegorical, and though the film is ostensibly about the ill fates of John Smith (Colin Farrell) and Pocahontas (Q'Orianka Kilcher), this will be more Eastern philosophy than English butchery. Also starring Christian Bale. Rated PG-13

    The new one is smart and funny and action-packed, and it’s bigger and better and sleeker. And Downey does it again, this time ramping up Stark’s arrogant wisecracking, telling anyone who’ll listen (mostly women) that, via the creation of his powerful Iron Man suit, he’s brought years of uninterrupted peace to the world.
